Rocky Mountain Corvette Cruise 2021

UPDATED - Registration Added
2021 Rocky Mountain Corvette Cruise
July 19-23, 2021

The RMCC is a 5-day event for 2021. The cruise will start from Okotoks Alberta. July 17/18 will allow those traveling a distance, time to reach Okotoks prior to the departure date.

Jeff and I are constantly taking what we learn from each year’s adventure to fine tune the next trip. For 2021 these are some of the changes we have made:

  • The trip is planned for 5 days, starting on a Monday and ending on a Friday. This way those of us who still work only have to plan for 1 week of vacation, not split between 2 weeks with a weekend in between
  • The total Hotel cost (double occupancy) including taxes is just under $900.00.
  • The first and fifth day start at 8:00am. Days 2 to 4 start at 9:00am. This will make our mornings less rushed and more relaxed!
  • The itineraries have us arriving at most hotel locations between 4:00 and 5:00pm each day, giving everyone more time to unwind.
  • Lunch and supper locations will be arranged to lessen worry about reservations.
  • Spreading our trip over 5 days allows for a bit more stopping/break time on the road.
  • All hotels require booking codes that will be released once registration is paid. The hotels will not accept registrations before the date to be listed on the forms.
  • There is high interest in the cruise. Booking will be handled in the same way as 2020:
    • A registration package will be available in January, 2021.
    • Registration will open on a date and time to be announced.
    • Completed registration forms and payment by E-Transfer will be received and tabulated in the order they come in after the opening time.
    • Once registration reaches 25, the remaining registrants will be notified and placed on a waiting list but no deposit taken at that time.

We will post portions of the itinerary weekly starting with the following:

This is a travel day for people to make their way to Okotoks, Aberta. Our hotel is the Lakeview Inns & Suites. The hotel will have designated parking for our cars.
